There are many different approaches to a beneficial warm up. A few years ago it seemed like the most famous thing to do was either hop on a bike or a treadmill for 5 to 10 minutes and "get the blood flowing." As we learn more in the exercise science field we are finding different approaches such as foam rolling and soft tissue work, pnf stretching, and other methods. I am going to talk about how we approach a warm up from client to client.
When a client comes in, they are going to be feeling differently from time to time depending on how they slept, what their day was like, or how they feel from the last session.
